Nora Aunor 24th FACINE’s best actress
Superstar Nora Aunor was named Best Actress at the 24th Annual Filipino International Cine Festival (FACINE 24), held at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco, USA.
The award for her spellbinding performance in the indie film Hinulid was a fitting honor for local filmdom’s greatest actress on her 50th year in Philippine entertainment.
Aunor’s FACINE best actress win was her second in October after the 4th Urduja Heritage Film Awards which chose her best actress for her performances in Kristian Sendon Cordero’s Hinulid and Roderick Cobrido’s Tuos.
The Urduja Film Awards and Festival aims to promote independent Films in Northern Luzon and CAR to hone the artistic and creative minds of the populace in the make-believe artistry of the celluloid world.
The Superstar’s 50th Year celebration, held at the Sampaguita Gardens on Oct. 14, was an unforgettable, jam-packed event that brought back memories of the good old days to the 64-year-old actress.
Organized and presented by her forever-loving fans, the celebration, billed Salamat sa Himala at Sining, Ate Guy, had Maricel Soriano, Cocoy Laurel, Victor Wood, Esperanza Fabon, Bernardo Bernardo, Patricia Javier, Glaiza de Castro, Edgar Allan Guzman, Teri Onor, writer Ricky Lee, director Elwood Perez, and producer Lily Monterverde among the guests. Daughter Matet, son-in-law Mickey Estrada and son Kenneth joined the celebrant. Laurel serenaded her erstwhile leading lady with the song “Lollipops and Roses” from the blockbuster 1971 Artemio Marquez film of the same title. Eton B. Concepcion
